Kitchen specialist spearheads sector push

We’re delighted to announce that we’ve appointed Ratinder Sandhu as our new kitchen category manager.

Having spent 30 years as a kitchen specialist at Arnold Laver, Ratinder brings a deep knowledge of the market to her new role and is spearheading a concerted push to raise awareness of the strength of our kitchen offering.

As well as overseeing our kitchen showrooms and working with our trade customers, Ratinder is leading the development of the brand new Howarth At Home website, which will showcase our full range of kitchen products, services and expertise.

Ratinder said: "Howarth has a strong reputation all over the country, but kitchens are not something the company is particularly well known for.

"We are working hard to build the firm's retail, trade and contract kitchen business."

One of the first steps Ratinder has taken since joining is to make us a corporate member of the Institute of Kitchen, Bedroom and Bathroom installers (IKBBI).

"Being part of the IKBBI will help us to promote our products and it will link us with installers," Ratinder explained.

"The institute will take the burden of ensuring all tradesmen have the correct insurance and certification before working with us.

"This will be key to our continued growth in the kitchen market."
